The Minister for Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation, Paolo Gentiloni, and the Executive Vice President and Director of the Italian Institute for International Political Studies (ISPI), Paolo Magri, will present the MED 2015 – Mediterranean Dialogues Conference to the press at 11.00 on Monday 30 November 2015, at the Farnesina. The conference itself, promoted by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation and by ISPI, will take place from 10 to 12 December.
The MED 2015 Conference is entitled “Beyond Turmoil, a positive Agenda”. Its aim is to lay the foundation for a new agenda for the Mediterranean so that the region is no longer perceived solely as a synonym for crisis, danger and instability but can once again be a theatre of opportunity.
The conference will focus on the current challenges and transformations in the Mediterranean, which has become the epicentre for international unrest and where the priority remains that of defeating Da’esh and violent extremism. However, it is necessary to move on from the current chaos and imagine a new regional order built through diplomacy, partnership, governance and co-development.
